Blog tour, giveaway & review - Bind Me Before You Go by Harper Kincaid

(July 21, 2015,  Entangled Publishing) 


A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
His heart is bound tighter than the bondage he craves...
Determined to put her past behind her, Cassidy Peyton moves to the Big Apple. But New York has a few dark secrets of its own, including Serve, an exclusive BDSM club. It's a place she isn't sure she's ready for, until she sees him watching her. Hot. Intent. Knowing. With eyes that leave her stomach tied in knots, because the loneliness he's trying to hide matches her own.
Security expert David Cavill has more secrets than any man should. Secrets that forever shut down any possibility of love, marriage, or family. Yet Cassidy draws him in, an intoxicating combination of strength, candor, and sensuality that David can't resist. But as their bond deepens, Cassidy must decide if she can love a man whose heart is bound tighter than the form of bondage he craves...
Barnes & Noble: 

Bind Me Before You Go is a sweet romance with a nice amount of kink. It's not a typical BDSM book, the hero David is not really a Dom but he is Shibari rope master.  He's not looking for a power exchange relationship, but he finds creating elaborate patterns with rope on a willing partner to be therapeutic, and it helps him to feel in control of his life.  I actually found this a refreshingly different take  on the BDSM lifestyle, and it would be ideal for readers who don't like to read more extreme scenes.  This is the first book I've read by this author, but I enjoyed this book so it definitely won't be the last.

Cassidy moved to New York to create a new life for herself, but she doesn't expect to find herself in an exclusive BDSM club.  But when her friend asks her to go with her on her first visit to the club, Cassidy doesn't want to let her friend down.  While she's at the club she is looked after by David, and he makes it clear that he wants to see Cassidy in his ropes. He persuades her to give him two weeks to show her the pleasures he can give her, but he warns her that he isn't boyfriend material. Their relationship starts to heat up, but David's secret and lack of trust threaten to tear them apart.

This is quite a short read, and I would have loved it to be a bit longer so that we could explore David and Cassidy's relationship further.  Both the story and the couple's relationship move quite quickly, maybe a bit too quickly at times. I can't help but think that a demonstration in a BDSM club, where you have to be fully nude in front of a crowd, is not the ideal time to experience bondage for the first time! The scenes are hot though, I enjoyed reading them. I liked both characters, although I wanted to shout at David sometimes for demanding so much trust from Cassidy when he showed her none at all.  Overall this is an enjoyable story that receives four out of five stars.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

Harper Kincaid's Bio: 
A woman with the heart of a revolutionary,
The mind of a pragmatist,
And the inappropriate humor of your tipsy BFF...

Born in California and raised in South Florida, I've moved around like a gypsy with a bounty on my head ever since. Along the way, I've worked as a community organizer, a professional matchmaker, an art teacher, a popular blogger, and a crisis counselor (to name a few). All the while, longing to have the guts and follow-through to do what I really wanted: to write and become a published author. That wish has finally come true and I am tickled pink with glitter over this good piece of fortune.

What else? Hmm...I love indie, lo-fi, complaint rock played on vinyl, wearing black because it's slimming, the theater, well-informed optimism, happy endings (both kinds),and making those close to me laugh 'til they snort. I'm a self-admitted change junkie, loving new experiences and places, but have now happily settled in the cutest lil' town, Vienna, Virginia. I totally love hearing from readers so stalk me via social media or email me at!
